I've been sitting here, checking some of the usual blogs, and drinking my tea for a few minutes now, and it's put me in a pleasant mood. I'm currently feeling quite benevolent, so I am going to shower you with nice things. Actually, just one nice thing. More specifically, a pattern I've written. What more could you want, really? And to make it even better, it's a little quirky. It's a tooth!
*Gauge and needle and yarn size don't really matter in my patterns. Just make sure the stitches aren't loose enough to let stuffing show through.
1. ch 2. 4sc in second ch from hook (4)
2. 2sc in each st (8)
3. *sc 1, 2sc in next st* (12)
4. sc 1, 3sc in next st. *sc 2, 3sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * three times. Sc 1 (20)
5. sc 2, 2sc in next st. *sc 4, 2sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * three times. Sc 2 (24)
6. sc 3, 2sc in next st. *sc 5, 2sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * three times. Sc 2 (28)
7. Sc around in the back loop (28)
8-10. sc around (28)
11. sc 3, dec. *sc 5, dec*. Repeat from * to * three times. sc 2 (24)
12. sc 2, dec. *sc 4, dec*. Repeat from * to * three times. sc 2 (20)
13-14. sc around (20)
Foot A1: sc 5. chain 5. Join back at st 1 of the row
A2: sc 5, then sc 5 into the chain (10)
A3: sc around (10)
A4: dec in each st (5)
finish off with a tail.
Foot B1: Pickup into st 5 of row 15, leaving a long tail. Then, starting in st 6 of row 15, repeat rows A1-3.
Foot C1: Pickup into st 10 of row 15, leaving a long tail. Then, starting in st 11 of row 15, repeat rows A1-3.
Foot D1: Pickup into st 15 of row 15, leaving a long tail. Then, starting in st 16, repeat rows A1-3.
Stuff the body of the tooth. Using the pickup tails from the feet, sew the side of each foot to the one next to it. Then stuff the feet and sew the very bottom of the tooth closed.
Use Puffy paint to paint on the face. This was my first time using it, so it came out a little messy. However, I was able to cover up most of the damage with white paint (after I took the pictures).
